Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet Kettle: Force Not Included

Obviously, the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader, doesn’t drink tea. In fact, he does not even ingest solid food. His life is dependant on the life-support armor that feeds his body with nutrient fluids. And so, clearly, this man needs no kettle, even it is one that is designed to look like his iconic helmet, complete with his Lightsaber as the handle.

Concept TIE-X Fighter Makes TIE Fighter Looks Truly Very Alien-ish

While many car designers work on outrageous car designs they couldn’t present to the board in the real-world, one Canadian automotive designer, Jason Battersby, who makes a living designing automobile for Audi, choose to take on the sci-fi route during his free time. Instead of turning out concepts that stays on the ground, Jason has came up with a brilliant iteration of Darth Vader’s secret advanced TIE Fighter which he calls TIE-X. Jason’s vision is a fictional in two folds: first, it is a spacecraft and second, it is a spacecraft to the theme of a hugely successful sci-fi franchise, Star Wars. I am not sure the original creator of Star Wars, George Lucas’ opinion on this, but for me, I have mixed feelings about this radical even by sci-fi standard design.

Tomica Darth Vader Semi Is The Father Of All Star Cars Because Why Not?

Automakers have already churned out Star Wars-themed Dodge vehicles, a Fiat 500E, and even an over-the-top C5 Corvette-based Darth Vader Car, and so it is not a surprised to find Star Wars-themed die-cast cars too, which Takara Tomy’s Tomica line has been turning out for quite sometime now.
